China ministry reveals 21 yards are still under review for ‘white list’

China’s ministry of industry and information technology has revealed that it is still reviewing 21 Chinese shipyards for a ‘white list’ status, after the first batch of 51 yards was announced last Thursday.

The ministry said that at the end of July 2014, a total of 72 shipbuilders from various provinces and state-owned enterprises have participated and applied to be reviewed for the ‘white list’ recognition.

Shipyards that are listed are expected to receive policy support and regarded as reputable shipbuilders.

The ministry added that experts from China National Association of Shipbuilding Industry (Cansi) and China Classification Society (CCS) are currently reviewing the remaining 21 participants.

The first batch of the 51 approved yards included 10 subsidiary yards of China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) and five subsidiaries of China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (CSIC).

Privately-run yards in the list included New Yangzi Shipbuilding, Jiangsu Rongsheng Heavy Industries, Nantong Mingde Heavy Industry, and Jinhai Heavy Industry.
